ID: VSN January 2010 - Envelope Mail - Floral
 x 4.75"h

Created: Jan 2, 2010
This is my submission for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the March 2010 issue with the theme of "Envelope Mail".

I made my own envelope from some Genoa Bond Calligraphic practice paper.

Drew wavy undulating lines on my envelope and then filled in with Funky monoline (part Rennie Mackintosh & my own stuff). Went over my letters with a Micron black pen. Colored in the spaces between the letters with colored pencils.

Rubber stamped the floral sprigs (Inkadinkado "Floral Flourishes" set #97633) with Kaleidacolor rainbow stamp pads (Fresh Greens & Birthstone). These stamps are clear so it's easy to see where you're inking the stamp. I started with inking the flower first, then getting the green to as much of the sprig as possible. Stamped on my envelope, lifted straight up and clear embossed. Then did the next stamp. Doing one stamp at a time till I covered my envelope.

Sponged color around the edges with VersaMagic, first with the lighter color "Lime Pastel", then going in and around with the "Spanish Olive".

Used a Quickie glue pen in the diamonds separating words and sprinkled with the Ritz micro fine glitter "Lavender". Then did the dots with the Gold. Let dry, then sprayed my envelope with Krylon Workable Fixative. Adhered the side flaps with double sided tape. Sealed my envelope.

Added my coordinating floral postage stamps and put in the mail
